How Portable Storage Can be Utilized in Restoration


Going through remediation or restoration on your business can be a stressful experience. One of the first things a remediation company will ask you to do is to empty the building so they can get to work on the restoration process. You’ll need to figure out where to store your business belongings and then properly prepare them for storage.

In this article, we’ll discuss how portable storage can be used in remediation or restoration. First, we’ll talk about restoration might be needed, then we’ll talk about the benefits of using it to store items for your own business or offer a unit for contractors to use.

Finally, we’ll provide information on how to find a fantastic portable storage company in Chicago. Read on to learn more!

Why Would You Need Remediation?

Natural disasters are common in the Chicago area. In the last 50 years, Chicago business owners have experienced flooding, freezing temperatures, earthquakes and tornadoes. All of these phenomena are capable of causing damage to your property – which is why you may be seeking remediation services.

Keep Your Belongings Safe and Nearby

Remediation takes care of the damages that are caused by storms, etc. – but while remediation is taking place, you’ll need a safe place to keep your property. Portable storage can be a great place to store your company’s belongings while your office building is being repaired and restored to its original beauty.

There are many advantages to using portable storage solutions for remediation:

  • The storage unit is delivered to you. You can get a storage unit delivered right to your business address, and you don’t even have to meet the driver.
  • You can pack the unit at your pace. You and your employees can take your time to load the storage unit or hire a moving company to do it.
  • Store it securely. Storage solutions are designed to be secure, with lockable door handles to accommodate locks. Ours are also weatherproof and able to withstand large quantities of snow, a must for Chicago storage units.

By keeping your belongings in a storage unit, you can keep them close by or easily move them to another location if the remediation process is halted.

A Place for Contractors’ Tools

If you’re feeling particularly generous, you can offer a second storage unit to contractors. Contractors use a variety of tools and equipment for the restoration process, some of which could be unwieldy to have to move. By offering them a secure place to store their equipment, you could expedite the process and win the gratitude of your contractors.

If you’re interested in offering a portable storage unit to your contractors, a good way to approach it would be to ask the head contractor how they feel about the idea. Contractors are sometimes protective of their gear and may not feel comfortable storing it on-site, so be sure to ask before you spend money on a storage unit that won’t be used.
